Hours after US President Donald Trump tweeted that the US would unleash its newly acquired sophisticated weapons against Iran if any of its interests are attacked, Al Shabaab militants have attempted a daring raid at US-Kenya Naval base in Manda Island, Lamu.
The 4 am siege targeted the fortified Camp Simba base at Manda-Magogoni, on Sunday, Lamu County. The heavily armed terrorists invaded Camp Simba, which has US and Kenyan soldiers and has been a key facility in the US War against terrorism in East and the entire horn of Africa. Reports indicate that the invaders were successfully repulsed. The Somalia-based terror group has already claimed responsibility for the attack.
